Vote now: #OwnTheWinterRide photo competition

The submissions have been looked at, and we've picked our favourites. Now it's up to you to decide the winner

Despite the weather sometimes being a barrier to the enjoyment of winter cycling - and sometimes even stop you riding altogether - it can also be a great time of the year to be out on a bike. 

With no pressure to push yourself too hard and only the diminishing daylight to cut a ride short, the colder months can be fun and rewarding. What's more, the misty mornings, bright low sunshine and stark scenery make for some fantastic photographs

So to celebrate, we asked you to submit your best winter cycling shots, taken while out enjoying the beauty of winter from the saddle, with the caption #OwnTheWinterRide.

We received hundreds of entries across Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, but we've narrowed it down to our ten favourites. All that's left is for you to do is pick the winner from the shortlist entries (which we've kept anonymous to keep things fair).

Have a browse through the gallery above, which includes all ten submissions, then all you need to do to vote is simply click on your favourite image from the list of thumbnails below. Whoever comes out on top will get a year's free subscription to Cyclist.
